NaNoWriMo Day 17 – The Late Night Write by Serenity Harding

Posted by on Nov 18, 2014 in Fresh Ink, Inklings | Comments Off

There is a good kind of nothingness in a peaceful sleep. Until 2:32 a.m. hits and…BAM! The writing wheels kick-in and I awake with a jolt. After the shakes subside, the jumbled voices flicker in and out. I fight the insanity with angry, floppy body movements and groaning; when realization smacks me with clarity.

I am beyond heart happy because story ideas flooded me last night! Ooo, I am sooo GIDDY, my body is doing the fidget dance! My overdramatic smile is contagious, I know! The best part…I’m rockin’ it old style with...

The theme is unkind – frustration (GRRR). The Big 3 have set-up camp; writer’s block, sign-in errors, and life’s busyness.
